Great benefits, culture + management need work
Project Assistant (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILSeptember 12, 2016
Great corporate environment, but management is terrible and very little training is done to coach the responsibilities given for a position. My department did not have me train in my position and were very keen on keeping secrets, which ultimately led to discord within the department.

Decent pay but poorly mananged
Contract Attorney (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 23, 2015
Decent pay at this project, however the upper management was incredibly disrespectful and rude. Reviewers were told each day whether they would be expected to come in the following day or not. Hours would be cut randomly and any effort to reach out to the higher ups would be met with a sarcastic and condescending tone.

Illinois Executive Legal Secretary (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILNovember 10, 2014
I would likely still be a Jenner employee had not the partner with whom I worked left the firm for a different opportunity to serve the legal community. He would have taken me with him except for a promise he made to his previous assistant.
Pros
Highly professional environment
